Review: "talk back" - AVEY

There are a few struggles in life that many of us experience. Sometimes we wrestle with self-doubt or figuring out who we are. It's also easy to lose yourself in external expectations, worrying so much about what others or society expects of you. AVEY gives us an introspective track that takes us on a journey of self-discovery with her new single, "talk back." The song addresses themes of regret, self-criticism, and struggling to find one's identity, encouraging listeners to overcome any feelings of self-doubt and the pressures of external expectations. "talk back" is an honest, light-hearted approach to conquering these feelings and is sure to put you in a great mood.

"talk back" begins with a soft, laid-back vibe, featuring energetic guitar plucking and ethereal electronic interjections. AVEY's crisp vocals effortlessly deliver catchy melodies and introspective lyrics. Towards the end of the song, "talk back" explodes into fierce electropop beats, releasing the epic energy the song had been building up to. The upbeat rhythm of the track is infectious, giving the perfect backdrop to dance along to. It's a must-listen for any pop enthusiast. Full of memorable melodies and pleasing vocals, "talk back" is a short and sweet addition to the pop world, leaving you begging for more.

Indie alt project, AVEY, is Avery O'Brien's debut solo endeavor. After enjoying the success of her band, Harlequin Gold, the singer-songwriter decided to spread her wings and embark on her solo career. Prior to the release of "talk back," AVEY released the single, "end game." With more music on the horizon, "end game" is the first single to be released from AVEY's five song EP. The EP is expected to be released Spring 2023. AVEY draws inspiration from artists like Bon Iver, Holly Humberstone, The 1975, and Billie Eilish. Featuring a sincere tone, AVEY fuses the warmth of traditional instruments with a twist of darker electronic sounds.
